    Excellent Value

    posted by StanleyL on 01/28/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    Laser pointer does everything it's supposed to. In fact, it's much brighter than I thought it would be. Easily produces a clearly visible light trail, on any night I've tried. Battery life is pretty good. Feels like a chunk of solid metal, so no worries ...
    Cons:
    It's a bit *too* bright to use indoors as a standard laser pointer. Need to keep a standard red laser for that.

    Basic and functional

    posted by StanleyL on 01/28/2013 Certified Owner

    Involvement:Novice  (still getting used to it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    I've used it extensively for opening watches to replace batteries, and for adjusting metal watch straps. Never had a problem, and certainly miles better than making do with tools not meant for this purpose.
    Cons:
    Well obviously, the tools are not made to the highest tolerances or with the finest materials. The screwdrivers feel like they...

    Good Lighter

    posted by StanleyL on 10/04/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:more than 1 month

    Pros:
    The build quality of this lighter is surprisingly solid. The parts work well together, allowing for this Zippo-compatible lighter to act and sound pretty much like the real thing. As far as I can tell, this should be able to use any Zippo parts, and vice ...
    Cons:
    Really, my only issue with this lighter was that the parts were not machined to high tolerances. So we end up with the two hal...

    Poor Design

    posted by StanleyL on 10/04/2011 Certified Owner

    Involvement:General (knows how to use it) - Ownership:less than 1 day

    Pros:
    The protection comes in two parts, one for each side of the slider. I found mine somewhat more stiff than I'd expected, though I didn't mind that at all; it felt like it could withstand some rough handling. Once I got the hang of it, I was able to put both...
    Cons:
    The back piece is, unfortunately, poorly designed. Thanks to that, and what I can only assume was bad production tolerances th...
